<![CDATA[Silver Star Trains 91 and 92: Sleeping Car Accommodations Offered at Lower Fares Without Dining Car]]> Dining Car Service Continues on Silver Meteor Trains 97 and 98

Amtrak is offering a lower cost travel option on our popular Sleeping Cars between New York and Miami, following a 10-month test on the Sliver Star (Trains 91 and 92), operating daily between New York City and Orlando/Miami, via Washington, DC, Columbia, SC and Tampa, FL. A Dining Car will not be operated on the Silver Star, and passengers can purchase meals in the Café Car, which offers hot and cold sandwiches, snacks and other items. See more details in the the Silver Star Café Menu.

Customers traveling to and from Florida can continue to choose traditional service aboard the Silver Meteor (Trains 97 and 98), which offers Dining Car service. Meals are included in Silver Meteor Sleeping Car fares. The Silver Meteor serves many of the same cities as the Silver Star.

Lower Cost Sleeping Car Accommodations

Traditionally on all Amtrak trains, the cost of Dining Car meals was bundled into the charge for the Sleeping Car. On the Silver Star, Amtrak Sleeping Car customers save up to 25% on the cost of a ticket, and can purchase food in the Café Car for a separate charge.

Sleeping Car Amenities

Passengers with Sleeping Car accommodations will continue to have complimentary coffee, chilled water and juices, turn-down service for their bedrooms and roomettes, private restrooms and access to shower facilities. Upon request, attendants will provide in-room service for purchases from the Café Car. At stations with ClubAcela, Amtrak Metropolitan Lounge or similar services, Sleeping Car passengers will also continue to have same-day lounge access and pre-boarding privileges.

Thank you for traveling with Amtrak. Reservations are available on Amtrak.com, our free mobile apps and at 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245).
